There are a number ways that we work with and support local allied health professionals.
Allied Health Advisory Committee (AHAC)
Our Allied Health Advisory Committee advises the Board on recommended strategies to address region-wide issues facing AHPs, while also considering the unique needs and concerns of each local community.
AHAC represents AHPs within each LGA, ensuring all AHPs have an opportunity to share their concerns and ideas, regardless of their location in urban, outer urban, rural and remote communities.
